An enormous sinkhole opens up at home to Legends of Golf

There's a new design feature on the Top of the Rock Golf Course, which hosts the Champions Tour's Bass Pro Shops Legends of Golf in Branson, Missou.: four big sinkholes.

The biggest sinkhole, which is reportedly still growing and is 60 feet by 80 feet and 35 feet deep, formed around 6:30 a.m. on Friday between the practice tee and a pond near the entrance to the property.

Sinkholes are not particularly uncommon in the Ozarks, where Top of the Rock is located, according to the Springfield News-Leader. The Big Cedar Lodge, which owns the course, is working with engineers to figure out how, if at all, they'll fill the hole. It could take up to two weeks to replace the sunk-in earth. The good news for the facility is that the sinkhole won't impact tee times, but it does create a new hazard.
